We had an awesome (and surprising) lunch at The Cajun Experience in old town Leesburg, VA this weekend. Every drop of Cajun blood I may have wanted to do a little Fais do-do dance as we tried a little crawfish etouffee, the shrimp maque choux, and the jambalaya. The fried oysters were perfect - traditional Cajun prep but with delicious fresh Virginia sweet bluepoint oysters. My better half's lunch came with two beignets and we can easily say these beignets were the second best we've ever had --- only behind Café du Monde in New Orleans.
The food was well-prepared and our server Andrew was personable and friendly. As other reviewers have noted, the restaurant is in an old house which just adds to the character. We had so much food that we ended up taking half of it home and the leftovers were delicious too!
We'll definitely be back.
